Luca's Birthday

and just like that he was 7! (that's how it feels some days-sigh)
We celebrated with a pirate party at the splash park.
So much fun to watch him grow & guide him along the way.
His dad & I can't get enough of him! 
Love is a wonderful thing.

Barefoot Books

I am so proud to be an illustrator of Barefoot Books.  Since the first time I browsed through their catalog and feel in love with their unique titles & colorful, rich illustrations I was hooked!  Today I received the Barefoot Books 2014-2015 Autumn/ Winter Catalogue & was thrilled to see my books & face featured inside.

This is a publisher who puts real love and attention to detail behind what they do.  Lovely books that live on.  So honored to be a part of what they offer to the world!

Have a good one!

Super Moon!

I'm in awe of the moon.  Tonight there will be an extra special moon to gaze at- the super moon. (sounds so heroic)  This is a phenomenon of a full moon that coincides with the time the moon's orbit is closest to Earth.  The result one JUMBO moon, can't wait!

Some Girls Art

Today I'm showing a small sampling of some girls art that Antonio will have available at the Printsource show.  We have lots of florals.  Some fairly simple & some quite involved as well as some sweet character art. Always fun to see what some of the art turns into!

Antonio will be in New York next Tuesday & Wednesday showing some of my art at the Printsource show. (August 12 - 13th at the Metropolitan Pavilion 125 W 18th st)  This show typically attracts more of the apparel market & the show is geared toward fall/ winter art. These buyers are looking for on trend art with limited color for ease in production.

My studio has switched over to primarily licensing my art.  That said I am a pattern factory & have a lot of available art that is good but may not be what people come to me for when they want to license my art.  I do think it's difficult to license a dot or a stripe.  For my business selling some things like that outright has been the best fit.  I feel the same way about some of my character pieces.  They may be cute but is the piece robust enough to support a licensed product that often needs enough content to be pushed & pulled across various formats. Or will it take me 10 years to find that client?  Because I make SO much art & love to doing it,  going to a show like Print Source from time to time makes sense.

Today I'm showing some boys art.

If your looking for some fun, fresh art stop by our booth- B1 & say HI to Antonio.  He'd be happy to show you the collection!  Tomorrow some girls art.
